VoF Week :: Stellaria graminea at Valley of Flowers:
Stellaria graminea L. ... (family: Caryophyllaceae)

2 AUG 12
Valley of Flowers ... about 11000 – 12000 ft


Perhaps needs rechecking. The petals seem distinctly longer than sepals.


May be Stellaria semivestita


Does agree with Stellaria gramineapetals are supposed to be equaling or longer than sepals
Illinois wild flowers
Floracyberia


I think matches with Stellaria semivestita as per POWO specimen and GBIF specimenLook different from Stellaria graminea as per POWO specimen one and two and GBIF specimens from India- one.
Also suggested by … earlier.


Still better option is Stellaria patens D. Don as per GBIF- specimens from Nepal– onetwothreefour.


However, sepals look shorter as per description in Flora of China.

VOF Week: Cerastium? for id from the Trek : 3 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (2)
This was shot from trek going up to Hemkunt Sahib….id please…have only two pics..


I think Stellaria, leaves should help


It is Stellaria patens D.Don (S.longissima Wall.), common in the area.

.


Caryophyllaceae Week: Cerastium sp.from VOF Tour:
This was shot
from way to Hemkund Sahib.. I have only these two shots… hope to get id..


Again Stellaria, leaves would help but could be S. graminea.


It is Stellaria patens D.Don.


Sepals look shorter as per description in Flora of China.

Stellaria graminea in FOI:
Images of Stellaria graminea in FOI look different as per  POWO specimen one and two and GBIF specimens from India- one.
Pl. check.


I have kept similar images at Stellaria patens ?, for the time being.


Since the sepals are shorter than the petals in all the images on FOI and eFI, in my opinion there is no reason to consider it as Stellaria patens


But no way S.graminea.


Any more feedback as I am not able to place this plant?

Stellaria vestita in Wikimedia Commons:
